    Winemaker Notes

    Deep, dark violet-red. Very elegant and complex, this wine shows all the character of pure Carmenere with notes of plum, ripe red fruits, spices, and black cherries. A wine with tremendous, mouth-lling structure, sweet spices, and mineral notes recalling pencil lead. Delicate and powerful at the same time. Its abundant fruit lends a long finish.

    Full-flavored, well-seasoned dishes with fresh herbs and a touch of spicy heat. All types of grilled meats with spicy or sweet-and-sour seasoning. Flavorful dishes based on grains, beans, or pastas with body and texture, with or without cheese, such as quiche, risotto, pizza, cannelloni, etc.

    Terrunyo, Cachapoal Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile
    Image of winery
    Inspiration for the Terrunyo collection of fine wines comes from a desire to identify and celebrate some of the finest parcels of vines within the estate-owned vineyards of Concha y Toro. Each Terrunyo (from terruño, the Spanish word for terroir) wine starts out with hand-picked fruit sourced from a cluster of vines in a well-delimited vineyard in which a micro-climate, the chosen grape stock, a select piece of soil and the expert hand of man interact, magically creating perfect harmony and delivering unrivaled quality.

    Cachapoal Valley

    View all wine

    With an outstanding reputation for its bold reds, especially Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah and Carmenere, the Cachapoal Valley spreads through the northern part of Chile’s Rapel Valley, with a continuous backdrop of the majestic Andes to its east. This region reaches as far north as the southern outskirts of the city of Santiago where it meets the famous region of the Maipo. The Cachapoal Valley produces no shortage of plum and berry dominated full-bodied reds with aromas and flavors reminiscent of mint, cocoa, spice or smoked meat.

    Carmenere

    Dark, full-bodied and herbaceous with a spicy kick, Carménère found great success with its move to Chile in the mid-nineteenth century. Far from its birthplace of Bordeaux, Carménère once accompanied Malbec and Petit Verdot as a minor blending grape there. But the variety went a bit undercover, impressing wine lovers until 1994 when many plantings previously thought to be Merlot, were profiled as Carménère. Regardless of what vine variety it actually was, these have proven successful and plantings continue to increase.

    In the Glass

    Carménère can express a bit of herbaceous character or black pepper but in warm climates or with additional hangtime before harvest, it makes wines reminiscent of blackberry, blueberry and dark plum, with rich and savory notes of chocolate, coffee, smoke and soy sauce.

    Perfect Pairings

    Carménère makes a great match for a hearty steak or barbecued red meat. It can also work well with white meat when prepared with a mole sauce or spice rub.

    Sommelier Secret

    Perhaps Carménère’s herbal character can be explained in part by familial relations—due to the strange nature of grapevine breeding, Carménère is both a progeny and a great-grandchild of the similarly flavored Cabernet Franc.
